Great buy!
Great sweatshirt! Light weight, very warm, and wind proof. At 55 degrees at 75 mph on my motorcycle, my torso is toasty! Sizing is slightly larger than "normal," which is fine with me. I'm 6' and 240 lbs, no monkey sleeves or climbing up my back. Make it in black and I'll buy another!

Quality sweatshirt
Excellent quality. Very well made. I'd say the material is a little heavier/thicker than a standard sweatshirt made by the popular sports brands. However this sweatshirt is also very wind resistant and that makes a big difference. I haven't worn it in the rain yet so can't comment on water resistance other than to say I held the sleeve under the faucet for a minute or so and the water rolled right off the entire time.I'm 5'11'' and 195lbs. Size large fits me perfectly with room to wear a heavy flannel or crew sweatshirt under this jacket when necessary,

Positives: The fabric is great, the design and pockets are great, it looks better than a standard sweat shirt.

The slight problem: the hood seems to be a bit large or flared open so it kind of scoops the wind. You can tighten the drawstring down but you'll look like Kenny from Southpark.

The negative for me: The fit was larger than expected.
I'm exactly between medium and large at carhartt. I ordered a large not noticing the "relaxed fit". I think the relaxed fit must equal +half a size.

Great Everyday Jacket
This jacket it great at blocking the wind and keeping you warm. It looks good, is soft, and has a thick fleece lining inside. The pocket can fit my XL phone or wallet without it looking like its drooping from the outside. Wearing this over a hoodie looks great also and keeps the wind out. Doesnt look or feel cheap. I bought 2 sizes. One to wear with a t shirt and one to wear over a hoodie. I wear a large shirt, and the large is good size for over a t shirt. XL for over a hoodie.

So comfortable I want to wear it every day.
I needed a new zip up hooded sweatshirt and this is by far the best one I've ever worn. It looks great, it's super soft, is nice and warm, and it stops the wind and rain. It's light enough to wear around the house but still heavy enough to be worn as a jacket.

Best Sweatshirt Period!
This sweat shirt is Awesome! It is by far the best sweat shirt I have ever owned. I am now on my 4th one. I wear this all the time. The wind shear is really the key. It is very comfortable to wear. I like when I bend over it does not ride up my back. It is lightweight but very warm. Ya it is more money than some of the other sweat shirts, but if you are outside all the time this is definaltly the way to go.

Quality you can see
I really like this hoodie sweatshirt. It works as advertised keeping me warm and the wind from blowing through. Mine was a bit darker than what is pictured on this site but that's OK with me. Also looks better in person. you can tell that it's not a $20 hoodie from a discount store.

Will the size medium come back in stock? I have been looking since last November?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the style you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item, size or color it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.
What material is on the inner sleeves? Is it the slippery nylon material for easy on and off?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it is not like the slippery nylon material. It's more like a denser fleece fabric. I usually wear it during the windy wet and cold rainy season, I went a size up and added another light hoodie underneath. In the fall I sometimes wear light flannel with the "slippery nylon" underneath. I find the "slippery nylon" less permeable to moisture vapor, this sweat shirt is breathable, waterproof, and windproof. Definitely a better buy than lots of the vastly more expensive outerwear with the same features found at stores like REI, at a fraction of the price.
I last ordered one of these wind fighter sweatshirts 12/2016. I want to order another to replace this one as it is getting old. Has the fit/sizing of it changed since then?
Todd L on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought this in size L and for me it's an excellent fit. I'm 5"11" and about 225 lbs; the fit is loose enough for easy movement of arms etc. If the sizing hasn't change in production, you should be good to go with the size you currently own.
Whats with one color? Extremely disappointed that you've discontinued this one. Very sad since I've had this style since 2015 and planned on buy another one this year because of the quality, durability and longevity of the current one. Have you come up with replacement yet?
Glenn B on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that this style has been dropped. We don't yet have a replacement, but suggest checking back in the spring for any updated style offerings.
Are there interior pockets?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This will not have interior pockets.
I just recently purchased one of these and the right sleeve seems to resist my hand from passing through it. There is only a little hole that allows me to put my hand through; I then stretch the material to fit my arm through. Once I have removed the sweatshirt, however, it goes right back again. It is very annoying, and has made the jacket an awkward fit, as it constricts my arm. Has anyone else run into this issue? Is there any way to fix it?
The S on Nov 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No this did not happen to me . I would recommend exchanging it for a new one . Could be a flaw in the one you received . I have big arms and hands and that’s never been an issue .
Since this style has been discontinued, will there be a similar replacement?
Xxxxxxv on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your interest with Product Design.
Will this sweatshirt be offered in any other colors (the back-shot picture above appears to be dark blue or navy)?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This style has been discontinued, so we will not be receiving any additional colors.
How many washes does Rain Defender last?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Rain Defender® retains 70% strength even after 20 washings.
Has anybody seen it in black? Will they make it in black?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your interest in a black Wind Fighter hoodie will be shared with Product Design.
Great sweatshirt I wish it came in tall sizes. will it ever come in tall sizes?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we will share your interest with Product Design.
Hello. Does it have an inner pocket? And if so, please let me know the dimensions of the inner pocket and outside chest pocket as well(how deep/how wide) and the way it closes(zipper/velcro...)
Sergiu B on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No - it features two outer handwarmer pockets as well as a left-chest secured zipper pocket. The chest pocket zipper is about 5.5" long. The actual pocket "bag" is 8."
Is this machine washable?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the care instructions are listed below:

Wash cold, do not bleach, and tumble dry medium. Remove promptly.
Does this go over you face some ?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: great jacket repels the water and good in the wind. the jacket is like any other draw string hoodie just covering the edges of your head you would still need some sort of face shield in extreme weather conditions, but i highly recommend this jacket.
What material is the inside of the sleeves made of? And do you make a hoodie with any kind of a fleece, flannel, or Sherpa lining throughout the entire sweatshirt INCLUDING the sleeves?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The inside of the sweatshirt (including the sleeves) is polyester fleece bonded to the jersey shell fabric.
I am very interested in this product as I am a motorcyclist and it sounds like it would help cut the wind down on the colder mornings. Is this available in black, if not when/will it be offered in black? Thank you.

I'm 6'4" and I'd love to purchase this but I noticed it doesn't come in a "tall" option. How is the length on this sweatshirt? Anyone tall own this?? Thanks. :-)
